Answer

Correct Option is incurred

Solution:The concerned sentence states that the minimum support price granted to farmers and the subsidy incurred in making a limited complement of food available to consumers through the public distribution system have been underlined by successive governments. Thus, we can infer that ‘incurred’ is the most appropriate option to fill in the given blank. Furthermore, the same word can also be used to fill in the blanks given in the two additional sentences.
(a) eschewed- deliberately avoid using; abstain from.
(b) incurred-to suffer the unpleasant results of a situation that you have caused.
(c) repudiated- to refuse to accept; reject.
(d) conceited- excessively proud of oneself; vain.
(e) disavowed- to deny any responsibility or support for.
